GBTA Cares: Wish for Wheels

Do you remember your first bike? What about the sheer joy of receiving it or the pure terror of riding it for the first time? With one-in-five children in the Denver area living in poverty, a brand new bike is just a dream. That’s why GBTA volunteers came together to make dreams come true and build 150 bikes for kids at the Sun Valley Youth Center on the first day of Convention.

GBTA teamed with Wish for Wheels for the Delta-sponsored GBTA Cares Service Project on Saturday. Wish for Wheels is a local non-profit with a mission of transforming the lives of kids from low-income families through the gift of brand new bikes and helmets.

Over 100 volunteers worked in teams from start to finish to assemble bike after bike before handing them off to some very deserving kids.
